Empower your artistic experience and “paint with fire” in this intermediate to advanced, one day encaustic wax workshop with Penny Treese at Spruill Center for the Arts.
For students who have established a relationship with layering wax, this class will elevate your work to a new level. Instructor Penny Treese takes participants through a series of new techniques that progress into an open dialogue about the content of paintings. This class delves into what inspires each artist and moves beyond technique to guide individuals through the creation of a successful work of encaustic art.
Experienced encaustic wax painters will enhance their current methods with exciting new techniques that will aide in developing a consistent body of work. This one-on-one teaching environment allows experienced students to advance to a new level of work.
Techniques to be explored include: Creating pigments-translucent to opaque in a range of hues and tones, scraping layers, accretion texture, oil paint washes, embedding/embossing objects, dripping and oil stick rubs, and creating a glass-like to raised textural surfaces.
Previous encaustic experience is required for this class. This is an intermediate/advanced level workshop. Contact Penny Treese with questions about requirements.
The Materials Kit is $35, payable to the instructor at the workshop. See the supply list for additional items to bring to the class.
